When Sam's mom would make banana chocolate chip muffins in high school, they never ever lasted overnight. Packs of teenagers would descend on them fresh out of the oven and no muffin would be spared.
The banana makes the muffins moist and oh-so-sweet, so I generally call these banana cupcakes. The chocolate chips are super rich, and once I got my hands on this recipe, I set out to modify it just a little.
For the Third of July, may I present to you:
Banana Berry Muffins.
These are fantastic and come together so fast. You'll need the following:
2 ripe bananas
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup all purpose flour
2/3 cup sugar (or a little less, to taste)
1 1/3 tsp baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, melted
1 cup frozen berries (or 3/4 cup chocolate chips)
Start by mixing the dry....
And mashing up the bananas to mix with the wet ingredients.
Combine, add berries. Don't overmix!
Fill muffin tin about 3/4 or 1/2 full for muffins (depending on size) and bake at 350 degrees F for about 20-25 minutes.
Try not to burn your mouth on the deliciousness.
These muffins are cake-like and super moist from the banana and the addition of frozen berries works perfectly.
Make them tomorrow morning for your 4th of July breakfast. Just don't expect to have any left over :)
